De faon gnrale, un traitement par corticodes s'appelle une corticothrapie. Il existe plusieurs formes de corticothrapies dfinies en fonction de leur mode d'administration, de leur dure de prescription et de leurs posologies. Le mode d'administration de la corticothrapie dpend en grande partie de votre maladie et votre mdecin dcidera du mode d'administration optimal vous concernant. Il peut arriver dans certaines maladies que deux modes d'administration soient combins (ex : prise orale injection intra-articulaire pour la polyarthrite rhumatode) ou alterns (ex : prise orale et prise inhale dans l'asthme). Si cela est possible, votre mdecin privilgiera les voies d'administration locales (ex : inhalation ou injection intra-articulaire par exemple) aux voies dites "systmiques" (c'est--dire voie orale ou parentrale) car ces voies locales induisent moins d'effets indsirables. Il faut cependant noter que ces voies locales d'administration peuvent galement induire des effets indsirables locaux ou gnraux, notamment en cas d'expositions rptes. On diffrencie habituellement les corticothrapies courtes des corticothrapies prolonges. This table takes no account of mineralocorticoid effects, nor does it take account of variations in duration of action Prednisolone 5mgis equivalent to betamethasone 750 mcgis equivalent to cortisone acetate 25 mgis equivalent to dexamethasone 750 mcgis equivalent to deflazacort 6mgis equivalent to hydrocortisone 20mgis equivalent to methylprednisolone 4mgis equivalent to traimacinolone 4mg Note that mineralocorticoid side effects are most marked with fludrocortisone, but are significant with cortisone, hydrocortisone, corticotropin, and tetracosactide (tetracosacrtin). Minerlacorticoid actions are negligible with the high potency glucocorticoids, betamethasone and dexamethasone, and occur only slightly with methylprednisolone, prednisolone, triamcinolone.

4/23/2013 A question has come up during some of my recent discussions with other physicians about the degree of systemic effect of "high-dose'inhaled fluticasone (1000 mcg/day). The specific question relates to what dose of oral prednisone might have similar systemic effects compared to Advair500/50 bid. If that is low, consider a cortrosyn stimulation test or trying to reduce the ICS dose by using non-steroid controllers. Stan Szefler who is an international authority on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of inhaled corticosteroids. If there is a question about an individual patient and concern about adrenal suppression, I would start with a morning cortisol measure. Keep in mind that patients vary in regards to their steroid sensitivity. We just keep verifying his findings with newer steroids. With an MDI, I think the estimates regarding prednisone equivalents mentioned with the question below could be in the right ballpark. The best work on this question comes from John Toogood and his landmark publications in the 1970s and 1980s. If you look at Figure 2, 1000 mcg/day of budesonide was equivalent to about 8.7 mg/day of prednisone in morning cortisol suppression. So, one would have to account for the delivery device once again to make some comparisons. The two below references are from publications on ICS reviews that might be of interest (Kelly, 2003 and Raissy, 2013) Potential adverse effects of the inhaled corticosteroids Inhaled Corticosteroids in Lung Diseases Therefore, at 1000 mcg per day of fluticasone, I would be less concerned about a DPI formulation than an MDI. Respiratory support should be available, and the dosage should be increased stepwise as tolerated (approximately 5 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent at 2- to 3-day intervals until marked clinical improvement or a dosage of 50 mg/day is reached). Dose reductions of the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor may be required as symptoms improve, which often may be delayed and gradual. I try and try over and over to yawn (causing me to get head aches), and finally accomplish it just to need to yawn again. I am a sleepy person all the time, but the straining to yawn thing makes me crazy! I also have increasingly bad short term memory problems (at only 25), could this be connected to the yawning, and lack of oxygen to the brain?
Low-dose steroids are used commonly in a number of diseases, including patients with asthma or arthritis," he says.
